Tuesday Morning Business Brief

January 22, 2013, 5:36 AM

Tuesday Morning Business Brief

Wall Street returns from a three-day holiday weekend with the fourth-quarter earnings season hitting its stride. The Dow gained 53.68 points to end Friday at 13,649.70. The Standard & Poor's 500 index rose 5.04 points to 1,485.98, while the Nasdaq composite fell 1.30 points to 3,134.70. Wall street appears headed for gains at this morning's openings.

  • World stock markets were mixed today after Japan's central bank promised open-ended monetary easing like the U.S. Federal Reserve but said it won't start for a year. Benchmark crude oil fell but remained above $95 per barrel. The dollar fell against the euro and the yen.
  • Striking subway workers in Athens defied a court order today to return to work and continued their protest for a sixth day, as demonstrations against new pay cuts escalated in financially troubled Greece's capital. Meanwhile, the Irish finance minister says several European Union nations are set to go ahead with the introduction of a financial transaction tax though several nations have refused to go  along.
  • The U.N. labor agency warns that the lingering effects of the global economic crisis means unemployment will continue to rise - even though world economies are expected to pick up. The International Labor Organization said in a report released Tuesday the net number of unemployed people rose by 4 million in 2012 to some 197 million overall. It is expected to rise by 5.1 million in 2013, and by another 3 million in 2014.
  • A U.S. Education Department study says the high school graduation rate nationally is the highest since 1976, but more than a fifth of students fail to get a diploma in four years. Officials say the steady rise of students completing their education is a reflection of the struggling economy and a greater competition for new jobs. Across the U.S., the dropout rate for male students was 3.8 percent and 2.9 percent for females.
